Fearless

 I'm becoming less afraid of bees...
They were busy...hahaha...busy as bees!!!
 I learned to move slowing...showing no fear...
Maybe a tad bit of uneasiness...
Deleted my earlier post. I just kept looking at the pictures and decided I couldn't use any of them. At first, I thought it was a great idea, then, the whole thought of it just rubbed me the wrong way. 
Sometimes life is like that...
What sometimes sounds like a great idea can turn sour...I think we learn about ourselves that way...if we take the time to learn...
ommmmm

Well you are braver than me! Bees make me very nervous. I just love the colour in these pics. What kind of flower is Mr. Bee on in the second & third shots? It's gorgeous. That last shot is really lovely - a whole other world opens up when we move in close enough :)

I love bees! So long as you do not threaten them or their hive, they will not sting you. They sting only in self-defence, never in aggression.

Jane, You know! I really don't know what that flower is. Yes, a whole new world of close up is now in view. There is a lot going on...

Debra, I could tell that you like bees from your blog. I recently met a woman that is a bee keeper. Is that the terminology??? She said that the only time she wears covering is when she's actually getting the honey. She was very interesting to talk to.

Playing with the macro gives one a better perception of everything around

I wondered what happened to your former post. Was looking forward to seeing your pics.

Steve, I plan on doing more. It's fun. When I get real close, there's so much to see, I sometimes focus on the wrong thing...then when I view the picture it's blurred.

Susan, I had gone to a local sporting goods store and had pics of various animals (taxidermy) holding the pen. Although two were kindof good, decided against using them. Every time I looked at them, I hurt inside...

wow, these are incredible shots! they are beautiful

turquoisemoon said...

Thank you Ana! I think I love macro!

I hate that bees are vanishing. Sure would hate to pollinate everything by hand.
Really nice shots.

turquoisemoon said...

Thanks Patti. I still have problems with figuring out exactly where to focus. Yes...don't you just wonder why they are vanishing???

These are great photos of bumblebees on coneflowers -- so sharp! I tried to take photos of bees on my coneflowers and discarded them -- sometimes things really don't work out. Glad yours did.-- barbara

turquoisemoon said...

Barbara, I really know what you mean. I finally figured out that I have a problem with where I was focusing. Then...sometimes, even when you think you've got it right, they just don't turn out.

I love bees and your photos. I have some just like them. It has been so hot and dry, I am thankful the bees found some nectar in the purple cone flower.

I also have a stamen post I worked on, but ended up in the thinking pile.

Zaftig Diva...Miserable weather around here. Sunday night, 7:00 and still 101.
